Changes in Neurology and Neurology with Special Qualification in Child Neurology Examinations


ABPN has made changes in the credentialing process effective for residents. Some of the clinical skills evaluations that were conducted in the Part II examination will now take place within the residency program, and the residents will be required to submit documentation of satisfactory performance in the evaluation of clinical skills as part of the ABPN credentialing process. Assessment of other clinical skills were integrated into a new computer-administered certification examination beginning in 2008. Candidates who successfully pass this computer-administered examination will be awarded a ten-year, time-limited certificate in their respective specialty.
